Problem with Image Quality when Exporting

I am having an issue with the video quality whenever I export to a .mov or .mpeg file.  Although my film looks good when I'm editing it in Adobe Premiere Elements, whenever I export the quality suffers.  It becomes somewhat blurry, with pixellated lines visible when the camera moves or when things move that I'm filming.  Does anyone know what's going on or how I could fix it?  Thank you very much.
John

If you haven't already you need to change the resolution as well.  Like this:
72ppi is the default which in theory should be fine for on screen viewing, but play around and use what works for you.

  • PE3 problems with video quality when exporting

    I've had this issue when putting DVD movies I own onto my iPod, but because I'm doing a client video now, it's crucial that I get the highest possible video and sound quality out of my project. Because the project I'm working on will be about 45 minutes long, I wanted to avoid working on the whole thing in one file since Premiere begins to refuse to let me do the simplest functions if I have too many clips in the timeline. I've been splitting the project up into segments and my plan is to export them and work with them as single clips when compiling the final project together.
    Now here's my problem: I export the segments as HDV 1080 60i files for the highest quality possible, but whenever the exported file is played, these horizontal lines appear on the screen. It's as if the colors are smeared a bit. I honestly don't know how else to describe it. On an iPod, it's only slightly noticeable, but on TV screens like this project will be played on, it'll be too distracting to be acceptable. Can anyone help me out here?

    No, all I'm trying to do is export it to the highest quality video so it can be put back into Premiere to be exported again along with several other clips (also exported in the same way). From there, I'll use different software to burn the entire file onto a DVD. No Blu-Ray, no camcorders, not even firewire connections (my computer doesn't have any). It's just going to be used by some 150 families to be viewed on their DVD players once the product is finished.

  • Problem with Video Quality when exporting to Quicktime or using compressor

    I've attempted exporting a video sequence (stills with transitions, video footage and audio tracks) directly as a QuickTime Movie and using Compressor (Apple-DVD-HD_30 Minutes) for import into DVD Studio. The export process seems to work well for each. Only problem: the video seems to get a bit distorted at random spots. The best way to describe the distortion: images (still and video) seem to blur and squiggle for a few frames at a time. This distortion is especially prevalent during more complex transitions (3 Spins and such). The sequence is nice and clean in Final Cut. I'm only seeing this distortion after export. Thanks for any thoughts you might have on this issue.

    @Harm,
    "Pear-shaped" (or sometimes "fruit-shaped") is a euphemism meaning that the effort has gone awry; it was a mess.
    @John,
    Export to DVD is a PPro 2.0 function; in CS3 it is now Export to Encore. Is that what you meant?
    First thing is to check the field orders of your source material and of your export settings. Don't invert them, and don't deinterlace interlaced footage.
    Perhaps a short list of the settings you have tried (and why you chose those settings) would help us help you.

  • Problem with photo quality when exporting interactive pdf

    Hi guys!
    I made a simple pdf with before/after retouching samples with photos overlayed, changing on mouse rollover.
    When I export it as an interactive pdf (on lossless jpeg quality), the photo quality on the final pdf looks like a jpeg on 40% quality, really bad. Rollover works.
    When I export it as a pdf for print on high quality - the photo quality in the final pdf is flawless but rollovers dont work.. (I checked "Interactive Elements: Include Appearance) but still nothing..
    Pleeease help cause I can't find a way. I just need the rollovers to work and to have the photos in the best quality possible.
    Thanks,

  • Problems with image names when exporting - images that have come back into lightroom from photoshop

    Can anyone help ? When I need to take an image from lightroom into photoshop then back into lightroom and then I export that image, the original file number disappears and is replaced by dashes. Does anyone know how to solve this ?
    Thanks !

    The appearance of dashes usually suggests some kind of pre-set e.g.
    Wedding-20150106-0001.jpg
    The only suggestion I can make is that you check to ensure you are using the correct parameters in the templates manager.

    Is there a bug or problem with increased noise when exporting pictures out of Lightroom 4?

    As you are asking about it, looks like you do see a problem. So if googling does not provide a solution, you should describe the issue in detail so we can try to help out.

  • Problem with losing quality in exporting FLV

    First I should emphasize that I am new to Adobe's products, and am learning it on the fly as part of a intelligent tutoring system design project. So I apologize for my lack of technical knowledge in advance. Rest assured I have put much effort in attempting to solve this problem on my own and by referencing this forum and other web sources, but sadly with no success.
    FYI, I am using the CS4 Master collection.
    My question pertains to retaining the quality of my video once I export it to .flv format via Media Encoder from Premiere Pro. My main video source is an .flv file that i have imported into my media browser. Initially I ran into a problem with the importing because it did not recognize H264 as having any media, and so I had to convert to Sorenson format to get it to import successfully. But it seems to have imported just fine without any loss of quality in the workspace. So that isn't my main issue but perhaps it is related.
    I am having major issues with losing quality upon export back to .flv format - which is the format I am required to use - the video is being imbedded within a larger program and so it needs to have a smallish file size. For the life of me I cannot figure out any combination of settings that works. If I select same as source then I end up with a video that is surrounded by black borders. This may because the workspace is larger than my imported file. I have attempted to enlarge it to fit the safe margins but it hasn't helped. If I resize my output video to 640 x 480 - which is what I want - I get a shrinked video with black borders. If I crop the input to what I want I just lose quality - but I lose quality either way. I really want to accomplish this without increasing the bit rate (and thus the file size). I have tried just about every setting available and I still lose the quality. Is this just inevitable? Is there a plugin that would help? From what I can it seems that Adobe has more problems dealing with .flv than with other video formats, but I haven't found anything that pertains to this issue specifically.
    Otherwise does anyone know of any other programs that can edit .flv files and offers multiple video & audio tracks?
    Thanks in advance. If anything needs clarification let me know.

    Ah yes I left out that detail. My source video is 640 x 480 also so the output is not an increase in size.
    This is different from my sequence settings. Which is 1440 x 1080 16:9 ratio. Pixel Aspect Ratio is HD anamorphic 1080 (1.333).
    I am assuming that this needs to be changed but I can't figure out how to do that (sequence settings are greyed out). Should I just start a new project?

  • Poor image quality when exporting a report to Word

    Hi,
    We are developing an application where users can download exported Word 2003 or PDF documents generated by Crystal Reports. The problem is that when the format type in the export options is set to Word for Windows the quality of the images in the document degrades immensely. The PDF images are looking fine though.
    Literally, the only difference between the two exports is that only one of these lines executes depending on what the user selects when exporting the report.
    crxReport.ExportOptions.FormatType = CRAXDRT.CRExportFormatType.crEFTPortableDocFormat;
    crxReport.ExportOptions.FormatType = CRAXDRT.CRExportFormatType.crEFTWordForWindows;
    I am using Crystal Reports 10.0. Upgrading to Service Pack 6 did not seem to solve the problem. This service pack resolves a similar problem that occurs with PDFs but it's Word documents we're having trouble with. The project we are working on is a .NET 1.1 project and it is hosted in a machine running Windows 2003 Standard Edition with Service Pack 2.
    Any help is greatly appreciated

    Other than that, as Ido recommended, despite the difficulties of the number of parameters, see if exporting from the CR designer is any different. If it is not, we're fighting a lost battle. Alternatively, you could create a new report in the CR designer, no database connection needed. Insert an image, export.

  • IPhoto Slideshow Image Quality when export to IDVD

    Aloha ... I have two issues that I am having problems with when I export to IDVD. My images look very fuzzy (originals are very high res and print quality images} when exported to iDVD and a DVD is made. Also in the show my vertical images look fine and fill the screen yet on iDVD they are made shorter/squatier and upper and lower parts of the original image are lost. The format is wide screen as is the show. I am using a LCD wide screen TV if that helps. Any ideas out there?

    Welcome to the Apple Discussions. Are you cropping your photos to the 16:9 ratio before creating the widescreen slideshow in iPhoto and exporting them to iDVD for a widescreen project? Most digital camera images are in the 4:3 size ratio and don't convert well to the widescreen. Also check the aspect ratio that you're playing the dvd in as that can have an effect on how the slideshow looks.
    Also remember that the images going to iDVD will be reduced to 640 x 480 (normal TV) and slightly larger for the widescreen version. So the pixel dimensions of the original image are not that relevant.
    Happy Holidays
    TIP: For insurance against the iPhoto database corruption that many users have experienced I recommend making a backup copy of the Library6.iPhoto database file and keep it current. If problems crop up where iPhoto suddenly can't see any photos or thinks there are no photos in the library, replacing the working Library6.iPhoto file with the backup will often get the library back. By keeping it current I mean backup after each import and/or any serious editing or work on books, slideshows, calendars, cards, etc. That insures that if a problem pops up and you do need to replace the database file, you'll retain all those efforts. It doesn't take long to make the backup and it's good insurance.
    I've created an Automator workflow application (requires Tiger), iPhoto dB File Backup, that will copy the selected Library6.iPhoto file from your iPhoto Library folder to the Pictures folder, replacing any previous version of it. It's compatible with iPhoto 08 libraries and Leopard. iPhoto does not have to be closed to run the application, just idle. You can download it at Toad's Cellar. Be sure to read the Read Me pdf file.

  • Datamerge problems with images in pdf export

    Hi
    Trying to set up a datamerge file to create multi page spread documents with fields on different pages. Attempting to set it up so it's as automated as possible as there are up to 20 different merge documents needing to merge with up to 100 different csv records from the same file each week .  The merge documents have different and repeated merge fields on most pages. 
    I've set it up so that the document has facing pages, and most pages have images spread across the whole of the spread.  the pages preview fine, they are created ok when using 'Create Merged Document' although the page numbers continue from one document to another (another problem).  but when I come to export to pdf, then the merge only shows the image on the left spread but on both left and right spread single pages, and the page numbers don't show the correct page numbers eg it will go p1 p2 p1 p2 etc all the way through the document instead of p1 p2 p3 - p20 etc.  I don't want to have to merge first then pdf but can't understand why the images and page numbers are not showing correctly.  Anyone shed some light on this please?
    Many thanks

    I have a simialar problem with the page numbers.  I dont know the proper solution to this, but since I only work with a few records the following works OK for me right now.
    What I do Is first set up for the data merge on the master page along with any object that have to be on every page.  Until it is merged I only make the master page.
    Then after it is merged I go and make any other edits to the individual pages. I dont know how to make it merge ONTO the pages you alread created.

  • Controlled test shows imovie 08 import is problem with image quality

    Friends,
    Like many others I thought that I had noticed a quality difference between imovie 08 and imovie 06. So I did a controlled test:
    I imported the same video into imovie 08 and imovie 06. I made two separate movies out of the video in 08 and two separate movies out of the video in 06. I then exported one of the 06 movies into 08 and one of the 08 movies into 06. I then burned all four movies to dvd.
    The resulting burns were the following:
    1. imported into 06, burned through 06
    2. imported into 06, exported to 08 and burned through 08
    3. imported into 08 and burned through 08
    4. imported into 08, exported to 06 and burned through 06.
    The result:
    The movies imported into 06 were clearly superior in image quality to those imported into 08. I couldn't tell a difference between the 06 imports burned through 08 and 06. I also couldn't detect a difference between movies imported into 08 and burned in 06 and 08.
    What is it about 08 import that causes quality degradation? I couldn't find any quality preferences to change.
    I suppose this post isn't much different from the others along this line but I couldn't find any that did this type of controlled test.
    Applecare had no idea why there was this difference.
    Steve

    I think I've solved my problem with a Google Search. I came across a free slide show generator
    (contributions requested) that shows much higher quality slide shows than either iPhoto or Aperture 3.
    You click on a folder of jpegs and it almost immediately generates thumbnails and within a few seconds
    I can be viewing a full screen, tack sharp, slideshow of all of the files in the folder. Much sharper than
    I'm used to seeing.
    I think I'll keep the Aperture 3 and use if for the purpose it's intended for in the future. I'll also redo the
    image preview files to the small size it started with and then I'll copy all of the files I'm interested in from
    iPhoto into a separate folder on another disk. I'll use Aperture to catalog and to perform image manipulations
    on but I won't try to use it as an iPhoto replacement. I don't think I'll be using iPhoto much as an image
    viewer in the future either after I finish moving my favorite pictures to the Phoenix Slides folder.
    The name of the free program is Phoenix Slides. It's free to download and try, free to keep (though I
    think you'd want to pay the small amount requested) and fast. My pictures have never looked so good
    before.

  • Problems with color quality when saving photos.

    I never used to have any problems, but just recently I have noticed that, after cropping, editing, resizing my photos, and saving....they look fine on my screen while open in photoshop, but yet when attaching them and emailing or posting them, the color quality seems to change. The photo ends up looking quite different than my original photo (the edited copy). I can't figure out for the life of me what is causing this and do not remember ever having this problem before. The only thing that has changed is a new monitor. I don't think that would have any bearing, because like i said, everything looks great until the photos are sent. (when looking in my sent folder, i can see the "altered" state of the image. it's not just a problem with someone elses computer settings, etc)
    A newbie here with low tech skills, lol. Any help is appreciated, I would just like my pictures to be seen by others in the color state and quality as they appear to me, and it is frustrating.
    I hope my explanation of my problem makes sense and look forward to any advice. (I'm hoping there is a quick solution like a setting I need to click on or off!??)
    (using Elements 2.0)

    Hi Amy:
    Sorry that the Color Setting idea didn't do the trick. Since the occurrence is separate, that is, seeing one color view using Elements and a different color view using email view. I still suspect this area.
    Calibrating a monitor to me (as the saying goes), is easier said than done. You may want to do a web search using Calibrate Monitor, or similar search words. This will find some interesting websites on calibrating monitors you can read and try out. If you do change some settings, write down what your original settings are before hand, so if you make it worse, you can go back where you started.
    There are two areas to calibrate the monitor.
    1. Using the monitor controls on the monitor itself.
    or/and
    2. Using the graphics card (software) control. Which is normally found (Win XP) DISPLAY PROPERTIES>SETTINGS>ADVANCED> then the TAB with your graphics card name.
    3. Actually there is a third one, which uses a very expensive device that connects to the monitor. At the moment this method escapes me. Mainly used by professionals and serious photo editing people.
    Good Luck!

  • Problem with image quality on screen in PS CS5

    I just installed PhotoShop CS5 and opened up some images to edit. The first image I opened came up as completely black. I tried zooming in and out, but the display still looked all black. I opened up another image and I could see the image clearly if I was at 25%, 50% or 100%. If I was on any other zoom size I would get a very bad looking image like it had a very coarse screen over it. I opened another image that had the ugly screen patterns no matter what zoom size I was using. Does this have to do with any setting default? Do I have a problem with file conversions? We have one person in our design group that can run in 64bit mode. I am running in 32 bit mode. One of the images I opened was one that he edited in 64 bit mode.
    Help this is frustrating. Any ideas on what to do?

    Thanks,
    I tried turning off OpenGL and that didn't help.
    Are you talking about looking for a new video driver from the Manufacturer of the video card I am using? If so do I just look for the newest driver, or should I be looking for something else.

  • Strange problem with image scaling when placed

    I'm currently running InDesign CS6 from the Creative Cloud, and it's version 8.0. I have a PC and am running Windows 8.
    I am experiencing a really odd problem when placing images, and it only recently (within the last two weeks perhaps?) has developed. I do ebook production for a publisher. I have an InDesign template (INDD file really, but "blank" and ready to be filled in, and as such I refer to it as a "template") that I use, and the cover for the book goes on the first page. The document is set to pixels as the ruler measurement, and the pages are 650 pixels wide by 800 pixels tall. The margins are all set at zero. The cover images are sent to me as JPEGs and always have the same size: 72dpi setting and 500 pixels wide by 750 pixels tall. This is chosen to be about the size of the full screen on most ereaders, or close enough to be so.
    So when working on a new book, I put my cursor in the blank line that is set up to take the cover as an inline image. I do control-D to place, select the file, and hit enter. This SHOULD place an image at that location that is 500 pixels wide and 750 pixels tall when looking at the InDesign page rulers. Instead, InDesign insists on placing this image at 50% scaling, so that it is only 250 pixels wide by 375 pixels tall. And in the link info panel, it shows the actual PPI as 72 and the effective PPI as 144. It does this no matter how many preference changes I try (including the ones under file handling and the import setting options).
    The strangest part is that if the file is just a tiny bit different than 500x750 @72dpi, then there is no problem. For example, if I open the JPEG in Photoshop and change the image settings to 500x750 @73dpi, then InDesign places it at 100% scale like I want. If I change the image to 499x749 @72dpi it also gets placed in InDesign at 100% scaling. I've tried this with various new INDD documents with settings in pixels, inches, or picas as the ruler amounts, and with different page or margin sizes (just in case the problem is with my template). I get the same result no matter what.
    It appears that InDesign somehow thinks that any image that is exactly 500x750 @72dpi should be scaled at 50% when placing it into an InDesign file. Has anyone else run across this? Is it a bug or something I'm doing wrong? I've been doing this exact procedure for over a year, first with CS5 and now CS6, and I've never had this happen until just recently. I suppose it COULD be an accidental change in settings or preferences. But if it is, I cannot figure out how to change it back.
    UPDATE: I installed the 8.0.1 update and it did not resolve the issue. I also tried more image options. It looks like this scaling to 50% upon placing ONLY happens when all three attributes match this: [email protected] All of the following modifications to the exact same image placed in the exact same spot in the exact same document resolved the issue:
    [email protected]
    [email protected]
    [email protected]
    [email protected]
    [email protected]
    [email protected]
    But of course, I don't want to have to modify every cover image I'm sent in order to prevent this scaling issue.

    I just tried this and got the same results (CS6, 8.0.1, on WinXP SP3). One other tidbit: the same 500px × 750 px @ 72ppi image saved as TIFF instead of JPEG worked correctly (at least for me). I haven't tried any other image formats yet.
    This sounds like a good candidate for an official bug report: http://www.adobe.com/cfusion/mmform/index.cfm?name=wishform
